When it comes to dating and cooking, is a lack of kitchen know-how a deal-breaker? If you were raised in a traditional Jewish family, you may feel that preparing a meal for someone is a significant act of love! Which leads me to the question, “What role does food play in love? Can it be love at first bite?”
If you are dating, sharing a similar taste in food may be the first sign that your date is going well. For a vast majority of singles, food plays an important role in their relationship. According to, 22% of adults will only consider a relationship with someone who shares their taste in food.
So, what is traditional Jewish food? A typical Jewish meal includes gefilte fish, chicken soup with matzo balls (also called Kneidlach), brisket, roasted chicken, a potato dish such as kugel or latkes and tzimmes.
Tonight on Jewish Singles Radio we talk with Boni Liss Wolf AKA
“Bonnie the Balabusta” (Yiddish word for a good homemaker). Wolf shares her favorite family recipes, tips and tricks for preparing traditional Jewish foods for a date. “Most people recognize that in dating and relationships so much of our interaction is centered around food,” according to Wolf. “If you’re looking to make a lasting impression, make a home-cooked meal instead of reservations,” says Wolf. You know the age-old adage, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.“
Does food really influence who we fall for?
